Nowadays, many of us desire to live a more significant personal life. One that includes more time spent with family and loved ones.
But for men, in particular, this can be extremely difficult. Many men inherently do not know how to “stop and smell the roses” in work or life; and many have a tendency to receive their needs at work – more so than anywhere else.
Our featured guest in this Episode of The Small Business Trends Radio is Matthew Scott, Founder & Head Coach of, The Life’s Work Group, Inc. Matthew is a former special forces soldier with a focus in psychological warfare, and went from jumping out of planes into the executive boardroom.
Matthew shares valuable insights into the questions that men can ask themselves to make a successful work/life transition.
- Mid life crisis! — Many have heard the term. Men tend to view life as two very distinct chapters – there’s the first one, and then the second one. In the second chapter of a man’s life they reflect on the mistakes and challenges of the first chapter and vow to perform the second one differently and with a different set of goals.
- What is a man’s biggest obstacle? — Perhaps it’s the ability to view the big picture. Men tend to focus on immediate environments and challenges only. They do not posses the ability view events laterally in order to anticipate measures necessary to avoid crisis. Men tend to lack the ability to rest and will do so by performing yet another activity. In a constant state of motion, men generally remain unaware of a need to change.
Whether you’re a man or a woman, Matthew’s observations will provide you with valuable and thought provoking insights into the male mind. And for our male listeners, Matthew can help you to determine the questions you need to be asking yourself at transitional stages in life.
